Gloria Acosta discovered accounting soon after starting her first job at age 17.  Within a few months of being hired at an accounting firm, she transitioned from reception to bookkeeping to help prepare for tax season. In 2020 after 25 years as an accountant and tax consultant, Gloria founded Boss Up Bookkeeping.  She noticed that successful women around her had no problem earning good money; however, they weren’t fully equipped nor prepared come tax time. 

Gloria’s mission is to empower high-achieving women to take control of their finances and make strategic moves with their profits. She partners with successful women by organizing their books each month and forecasting future profits and the unavoidable payout to the IRS.

Liz Kerrigan

Liz Kerrigan

Intuitive Coach

Prior to working with energy medicine, Liz was a successful Executive TV Producer, director, writer and Vice President of Current Programming at more than one large production company. She produced hundreds of hours of TV shows for networks like HGTV, Food Network, USA Network, Animal Planet, MTV, and Hulu to name a few. She is very proud of the work she has put out into the world and the teams she has led, but at the end of the day, that career path was serving a false sense of self. She was successful in that industry because she thought if she gave it everything, it would make her feel complete. She thought that her success in entertainment would bring her happiness… Now she knows what brings her happiness is her divine connection with the Universe and that is what guides her to help others do the same. 

The work she is doing now is her true passion. It is what lights her up inside and what makes her excited when she wakes up each morning. All the hardships, challenges and successes that came before her career in healing were crucial for her to experience so that she can truly help others heal on the deepest levels possible. For that, she is forever grateful.

Luz Hernandez

GirLife Facilitator, Coach and Speaker (Spanish Talk)

Helping working moms, career women, and entrepreneurs find a proactive way to empower their daughters in a fun and creative space. I lead girl empowerment workshops by creating an environment that inspires mindset growth; encourages taking risks in a compassionate way; and provides the freedom to communicate openly.  

My vision is to empower girls with the tools they need to succeed in life.  I want each girl to go after what they want without excuses, fears, or judgment from any challenges they may face. Instead they will experience resilience and persistence to reach their highest self everyday by choosing who they are first.  These mindset shifts will heal them inside out. Nourishing the mind and body is an integral part to early development into their adult years.
